As of tomorrow I will have been out of treatment for 1 year so according to my Dr. as he calculates it I am a 1 year survivor!!! I thank God every day for that and for letting me find all of you last year when I was beginning this journey. I learned so much and got so much inspiration from all of you and I can never thank you enough. It is hard to believe it has been a year since that day but here I am! Still have problems with lack of saliva though it is better. Taste is still off on some things but can taste a lot of things, sweets not so much; but that may not be all bad! Have spasms in neck more frequently in the past couple months but have been trying to do more stretching exercises and that seems to help. Have had a clear pet scan and clear cat scan. So all and all I am truly blessed. I am here to watch my grandchildren start school another year, a senior and 2 7th graders, we have had a couple of wonderful vacations and a lot of precious moments that I have treasured. I have a closer relationship with God and I give him all the praise and glory. Thank you again my friends for always being here when I needed you.
